Mark Riley The Intersection S9 Ep 7 Gaza - why not a tribunal Santos. Supreme Court Ethics Code
Last time out I told you the war between Israel and Hamas was fast becoming a propaganda war fought on social media. The actual battlefield remains real, but so too does the fights on social media. Just ask Elon Musk.
Are we finally rid of George Santos? The chair of the House Ethics Committee has ruled he has none, he’s announced he’s not running for re-election, but now there’s yet another effort to expel him from the House. Does it make a difference? There’s yet another climate study that says earth is in trouble. Is it time to tell the truth and say politicians aren’t capable of doing anything about it? The Supreme Court has a new ethics code. Does it really mean anything?
Mark Riley The Intersection S9 Ep6 Israel.Hamas.Palestine.Trump.Santos
The war between Israel and Hamas has become a protracted struggle not just on the battlefields but between competing propaganda machines. Who’s winning? Meanwhile, the House passes a bill providing aid to Israel but not to Ukraine. Wait, what??? The damages trial against the Trump organization rolls on with his kids and the old man himself scheduled to testify. Why are infant deaths rising for the first time in two decades? Try as they might, the House can’t seem to get rid of serial grifter George Santos. Why? We’ll get into it
Mark Riley The Intersection S9 Ep5 Hamas. Israel. Trump. Santos. Jim Jordan
Hamas and Israel, and the question that no one seems to want to ask. And of course, who stuck his foot in his mouth yet again? You know who, that’s who. The House Speakers’ sweepstakes, and the self-destruction of the Republican Party. A truly frightening study on climate change. George Santos, what again? And the labor market chills a bit.
Mark Riley The Intersection S9 Ep4 Trump for Speaker of The House
Israel and Hamas, at war again after the surprise attack against Israel. Chaos in the House, as Republicans try to figure out who their next speaker will be. Some in Congress think it ought to be Donald Trump? Seriously? Honestly? How did aid to Ukraine end up a litmus test for right wing lawmakers? A judge rules Alabama’s gerrymandered congressional lines have to be changed.
Mark Riley The Intersection Trump. Bob Menendez Gold Bullion. Tupacs killer S9 Ep3 - 02102023 17.14
More bad road for Donald Trump, as judge rules inflated his worth and one of his defendants cops a plea.
Just to show alleged corruption knows no one political party, New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez is indicted on corruption charges, and some of his allies say it’s time to go!
Senator Diane Feinstein passes away at age 90, and a replacement has been named. Is the war in Ukraine degenerated into a protracted stalemate?
And, 27 years after his murder, a man has been charged in the murder of Tupac Shakur.
Mark Riley The Intersection S9 Ep2 Hunter Biden. UAW. Child Poverty in America
Joe Biden’s son Hunter indicted on gun charges. This has given rise to all manner of speculation, including charges of a hoax by the Deep State to whether Biden will now quit his bid for re-election. At the same time, the coward known as House Speaker Kevin McCarthy tries to keep the ultra-right wolves away from his door by announcing an impeachment probe. The United Auto Workers strikes against all Big Three automakers at once. Why has the number of American children living in poverty doubled from 2021 to ’22.
